The MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Serie Oro has finally entered production. The motorcycle first debuted at the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show and at the 2019 EICMA, MV Agusta revealed the production model.
MV Agusta announced that 300 units of the motorcycle would be produced. However, before production could begin, the pandemic hit Italy and the factories had to be shut down temporarily. Now that the restrictions have been eased and factories have reopened, the motorcycle has finally gone into production.
The MV Agusta Superveloce 800 Serie Oro is one of the modern classics and can easily be recognised at once. It looks nothing like the F3 800, it is based on. It features a signature bubble fairing made of carbon fibre, up front is a circular LED headlamp and right above it is a yellow-tinted windscreen with red framework.
While the fairing is Silver-coloured, the rest of the bodywork is finished in Red. The lower frame cover is finished in a shade of Gold and so is the swingarm. The bottom of the motorcycle comes with a black-coloured tub and the rear has a circular jet-style LED tail lamp. It comes with twin exhausts from SC Project.
The Superveloce 800 Serie Oro draws design inspiration from the old MV Agusta race machines of yore. It is considered as one of the best motorcycle designs to come out in recent times. It actually won the Concept Bike category of the famous Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’ Este show.
As stated earlier, the motorcycle is based on the F3 800 and is hence powered by the same engine. It is a liquid-cooled, 798cc, inline-three-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 146bhp and a peak torque output of 88Nm. A 6-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel.
It looks like an old MV Agusta race motorcycle, but it is extremely modern underneath. It features a colour TFT display for instrumentation, ABS, eight-level traction control, rear-lift mitigation, electronic quickshifter, etc, all as standard equipment.
MV Agusta is a niche brand and only wealthy enthusiasts buy motorcycles made by them. It is the same case in India as well. We expect a few units of the bike to be allotted to India and sold through MotoRoyale.
